Winners Circle

Congratulations to the 1956 International Queens of Harmony, Junior Misses, celebrating the 60th Anniversary of their win! Baritone, Helen Peters, is a member of Heart of Illinois Chorus.

Welcome to the Winners Circle page, where we proudly show off our members who have become Region 3 Quartet Champions or represented Region 3 in a quartet on the International competition stage in Sweet Adelines.

We also welcomed a few new members when Region 3 was re-aligned in 2014 and we added Region 5 & 22 quartet champions who are now members of region 3.

As  you can see, we are missing a few of the early years! If anyone knows who those winners are, please send the names of the quartet and members of the quartet to the webmaster. Thank you!
